Aspirational Fashion Friday

Let’s lighten it up today with FASHION! I’m no fashionista; most of my clothes come from Old Navy and Macy’s and are about 1) comfort and 2) fit. I dress business casual Monday through Friday for work, but I love sun dresses, tank tops and jeans on weekends. One of the best perks about getting to my goal weight will be shopping in the “misses” department rather than plus. Let’s go on a virtual shopping spree for when I reach my goal weight, shall we?

First, is a bee inspired outfit I made on Polyvore. I love the look of skinny jeans with some tops, but I don’t think they’re quite right for my plus-size body. A cute printed tee and fun fedora would be flirty and casual, perfect for strolling the farmer’s market.

I love feminine, flouncy sun dresses, and this one from Billabong would be super cute with a jean jacket and girly pink wedges.

Since I did bees, I have to do birds! I love the flouncy look of tunic tops but can’t always find ones that are flattering for larger busts. With trouser jeans, this look would be perfect for a casual Friday in the office.

And lastly, something for an important client lunch – perhaps where you’re pitching a new concept to an ad agency. Something professional, yet young and with personality. I’d love a structured and feminine polka dot dress with a chic cream blazer, fun heels and a timeless bag.

That was fun, and friendly on my wallet – kind of like virtual window shopping! Do you have any aspirational outfits or styles? Tell me about them!

  1. As you “downsize”, don’t forget your underwear. Go somewhere for a bra fitting. It is not as bad as you may think. With the proper fitting bra and getting the “girls” where they belong, the clothes on the outside look so much better. I went to Lane Bryant and got some awesome bras. Watch for the sales. They frequently have a buy 1 get 1 half off or buy 2 get 1 free.
